Current Work

Through our organizing, Philly Thrive won a permanent closure of the PES oil refinery and an end to 154 years of pollution. Our current campaign contests for justice in the historic refinery site redevelopment – together we’re organizing to win a complete cleanup of the site and robust reinvestment in our neighborhoods.

Philly Thrive also runs robust community support programs, including a youth summer camp, a gun violence healing circle, a women’s support circle, and a weekly food box delivery. We will continue to build people- power until everyone has a Right to Breathe, free from pollution, oppression, and a violent economy.
